Socialization Tips from CairnShire


What is Puppy Socialization?


In a nutshell, puppy socialization is the ongoing practice of exposing your puppy to as many new experiences as you can while they are young enough to soak them up fearlessly and make positive connections with these experiences.


A puppy will begin to socialize on their own as soon as they are born. By the time they are eight-weeks old, they will be ready to expand their horizons.


You will be charged with providing new and repeated positive exposures, while your puppy does the actual socializing. Remember, every single exposure is a life experience. Puppies are always observing and always learning.
